    Wow, Lakeland & Winterhaven are neighboring counties, he didn`t have far to fly either.

    My husband & I saw something similar to that when we first moved down to Florida. We were driving I4 and there was a small plane in the middle of the road. It had to make a emergency landing. We didn`t get to see it land, but it was quite weird seeing a plane in the middle of the interstate, lol.

    Kudos to him though for landing the safely & being a student flier! Pretty awesome watching it from inside the roosterpit as well.

    thats kinda cool, but plane crashes are getting to much attention now, after the thing in the Hudson people are just all afraid of planes again.

    @ router52000 "Id rather fly a brick than a homebuilt aircraft."

    Although the plane is home-built, I would reckon the engine was store-bought, which means that this could happened to any plane. It sounded like he might have had a partially clogged fuel line or some water in the fuel.

    However, if you have a big enough engine, you can get a brick to fly. Just look at the F-117.

    This video should be shown in every pilot school.

    That was an amazing job. As a pilot one of the first things you`re taught is what to do if your engine goes out and you have to make an emergency landing, and he performed perfectly. I just hope that I can do the same if I ever get put in that situation.

    that was like a textbook emergency right there, beautiful landing(and perfect conditions, really, how often do you see a six lane road with only a half dozen cars on it?). on another note, the guy on the right has a headset like mine(the yellow one), only I think he`s wearing it backwards.

    "But after they got airborne, the engine failed."

    I call BS. They staged it. Yeah it could have really happened by why did they conveniently have 2 cameras running at the time? I know plenty of pilots, they don`t film themselves flying.
